Anal Fissure is a tear of the skin near the anus. When constipation hits or passing a stool becomes difficult, we tend to strain and stretch the sphincter muscles. This kind of straining can cause problems like hemorrhoids or anal fissures. An anal fissure can be quite painful. The pain is usually felt while passing stool and may remain for a long time afterward. The pain may be burning or stinging in character. There may be a discharge of pus or some foul matter too. Most anal fissures are shallow (kind of like a paper cut) and will usually clear up within a few weeks. They can cause pain and bleeding during and after bowel movements. Anal Fissure can occur at any age.
The anal fistula is a tube-like tract or passage that goes from the anal canal to a small hole in the skin close to the anus. A small or narrow tunnel is formed. There are a number of small glands in the anal canal. These glands drain into the anal canal. At times, a gland or its outlet may become blocked. This blockage causes an infection to develop and an abscess is formed. Such an abscess may point towards the perianal skin. The tract formed in such a manner is known as a fistula. Symptoms of anal fistulas include pus secretion from the anus, an increase in diarrhoea, and/or an extra opening somewhere near the anus..
From bleeding to anal itching, the symptoms of anal fistulas, anal fissures, and hemorrhoids can be similar.
